      Hey guys and bunnies! Remember Sophie had a false pregnancy almost 5 days ago? I don’t know if I should clean her cage already where her nest is. How much time should I wait? Will she get mad if I clean it?

      Hi Giuly I can understand you conundrum over wanting to clean up the mess she’s made with the fur but also if you clean it up, she may pull more fur out and you’ll have a bald bunny.  And yes, it is possible she may lunge or growl at you if you try to clean it up.  Then I would say for sure to leave it there a bit longer. I do have a question though, is she nesting in it at all?  Has she displayed anymore nesting or “false pregnancy” behavior?  I’m not sure how much info you’ve been given but here is some reading on it if you are interested, it’s an answer that Dana Krempels provided a user.  Dana Krempels, if you are not familiar with her is a super-wonderful bunny savvy person with a PhD- but please know that she is not a vet however is very reliable to many bunny-savvy people and can get answers to the most puzzling questions that even the wonderful people here can’t always answer.

      Thank you! I’m gonna read it right now. No, she hasn’t been nesting at all lately. Since we let her out free around the house all day and in her pen at night she doesn’t even get in her cage anymore lol and her nest is in there. But I’m gonna leave it a little more just in case!

      A little bit longer probably wouldn’t hurt, just until you are sure that she is ignoring the nest completely and won’t miss it. That is nice of you to be so considerate of her

      Thank you that means a lot since I’ve never had a bunny before and I’m trying to make her happy. Today when I went to feed her she started running around me! haha it was so cute. I’m nervous cause I’m spaying her this Friday I want her to be okay.
